Mixed Emotions

Morning all, things have been a bit fraught here at 'Chez Chrissie' lately so I apologise for not being around much.

The month started off quite happily with a dear friend welcoming a new baby into her family so I whisked up these 'cute as a button' baby cards for her.
I designed these in CAS and just added the die cut name tags, so they weren't too fat to be posted normally.

Later in the month we received the very sad news that hubby's sister had died.
I never really know what to do for sympathy cards, I always use the 'thinking of you' sentiment but I tend to find it difficult to decide on an image. However, I kept it very simple and my niece really liked it, so it must have been OK.
I really hate the months of January and February as we seem to lose so many loved ones then, roll on March!
